Turkey admits publishing incomplete coronavirus tally

Turkey has admitted it is publishing only a partial tally of confirmed coronavirus infections, stoking a political row that has been simmering for months over the true scale of the pandemic in the country. The Turkish health ministry changed the way it reported coronavirus cases in late July. In its daily table of Covid-19 data, it replaced the words “today’s number of cases” to “today’s number of patients”.
